    the first rule of warning points is that you dont talk about warning points

    now you get another for your troubles.

    in all seriousness I think this is covered in the site rules:

    Most of them don't expire, but as long as you don't keep doing things that will give you points, getting banned isn't really a problem. The only people who get banned are real nuisances or people who caused disturbances to GBAtemp.

    Scarlet pretty much hits the nail on the head.

    But I'll throw even a little more nuance on it. What happens next may surprise you.

    Can they be removed? Yes, we have the ability to remove/delete them.

    Will they be removed? Not usually. We generally opt instead to issue another warning, except with a negative value, to negate some number of warning points that you have. If we remove them outright we lose record of what the more problematic individuals have done to get themselves in that position. Issuing a warn with a negative value preserves that history.

    When will they be removed/negated/whatever? Today. Tomorrow. Next week. Five days ago. When Mercury is in gatorade. When I wake up feeling well rested for once. Maybe never. Best way is to just be on good behavior, don't cause problems, and don't ask for them to be removed (I'm not saying that's what you did here :) ) We'll do what needs to be done when the time is appropriate and when we notice.

    Worth mentioning that just having a warning point doesn't automatically put you on anyone's shitlist. People get warned all the time. Vast majority of the time it's just our way of saying "hey, cut the crap. We mean it." and that's that. If you're finding a way to get warning points every other week, you're going to be a bigger blip on the radar.

    Yes
